What's been going on here, I have no idea. An old tree stump covered in chestnuts. Someone has gone to all the trouble of gathering several kilos of nuts, then just abandoned them. Bizarre.
I found this mushroom about a day too late. I have no idea what it is, but it's very spectacular. It looks as if it could be a member of the stinkhorn family; but without the stink. Unless it's a cooked octopus (quintopus) that fell from the sky!
